Nintendo UK has uploaded a trailer montage of all the DLC characters that have been released for Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. It has been over a year since the base game was released to the world. Development for the game, including DLC, has ceased with Corrin and Bayonetta’s inclusion.
Although the trailer contains no new additional footage, it has a nice shot at the end of all the DLC characters together. The trailer has not been uploaded on Nintendo of America’s YouTube channel at this time.
The highly anticipated Fire Emblem Fates has received a new trailer detailing its first DLC: Map Pack 1 and Fire Emblem Fates: Revelations. Downloading Map Pack 1 gives players 11 new maps, filled with familiar faces from the series, to explore and conquer. This pack will be sold separately from Fire Emblem Fates: Revelations, a third version of the game that offers a new path which diverges from those featured in Birthright and Conquest. You can see it all in the trailer below.
Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright and Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest are making their way to North America on February 19th, with the Revelations DLC following on March 10th. There is still no word on the title’s European release.
New official footage of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U has been unveiled, giving fans an early look at the fighting game’s two final playable characters – Bayonetta and Corrin – as well as the new Umbra Clock Tower stage. The duo of fighters will arrive as downloadable content tomorrow, February 3, for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of the game. You’ll be able to purchase Bayonetta for $5.99 on 3DS or Wii U – or as part of a bundle for $6.99. You can get Corrin for $4.99 on 3DS or Wii U, or as a bundle for $5.99.
We don’t have to wait much longer to duke it out with Bayonetta and Corrin in Super Smash Bros. Nintendo has announced that the two characters will be made available sometime in the afternoon of February 3 on the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of the fighting game. The sixth wave of Mii Fighter costumes will also arrive as downloadable content on the same day. Bayonetta will come with her Umbra Clock Tower stage, priced at $5.99 for 3DS or Wii U – or as part of a bundle for $6.99. Meanwhile, Corrin can be purchased for $4.99 on 3DS or Wii U, or as a bundle for $5.99.
The last Super Smash Bros Direct may have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean the commercials will stop. Nintendo has released an ad in Japan that features the newly announced DLC for the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game. Although Cloud gets a bit more love than Bayonetta or Corrin, the commercial does a decent job of conveying the uniqueness of each new fighter. You can see for yourself in the video below.
Game Informer has run an insightful interview with Splatoon co-director Yusuke Amano and producer Hisashi Nogami. The interview covers a variety of things including the fact that they have both reconfirmed that the additional free content for Splatoon will stop in January. However, they don’t have any plans for any additional paid DLC which will come as surprise to some. Here’s what they had to say!
How long do you plan to release additional content for the game? Will content eventually go from free to paid after a certain period of support?
Nogami: As we mentioned earlier, the free content for the game will continue to release until January 2016 and we don’t have plans to release paid DLC after that.
Amano: Considering the content that has been added after release, rather than thinking about it as free or paid add-on content, I really think of it as content that extends the ways in which you can play Splatoon. And this isn’t something that we just wanted to keep giving to people for them to consume, so that they keep churning through the content. Rather, we knew that as players would play what was available – for example, getting used to a certain weapon – at that moment, they would get new weapons and maps, and have to go back to that idea of “OK, how am I going to figure out how to use this weapon? How am I going to develop strategy for this map?”
Nogami: While games definitely are a collection of content, they’re also a playground of sorts. As we continue to release content and update Splatoon, we’re adding to and continuing to design that playground for people to enjoy. This is just sort of my personal take on the topic. And the Splatoon community has really developed further than we had originally envisioned, and we want to make sure we continue support for creating this playground for the players.
We recently posted about the new Mahi Mahi Resort stage heading to Splatoon today for North America, and in the early hours of tomorrow morning for Europe.
If you’re not avoiding spoilers, Nintendome has posted some footage of the new stage in action, including the map layout and showing off features such as the rising water levels. Within the clip it is referred to as having a “Super Mario Sunshine vibe.” You can check out the footage below:
